New Blog Posts to Come

Inspired by fellow author/blogger Berthold Gambrel, I’m going to try something new with my blog. He recently finished a series in which he breaks down some of the most memorable 90’s action films (you can read the last in the series here, posted just this morning), and that was fun to read. Therefore, in a …

Weekend Update: Some Progress

For a while now, my current work-in-progress Creed: Solomon’s Fortune has been giving me headaches. I think this was the toughest book I’ve written yet, and it took a long time for the full story to truly reveal itself to me. I took a couple breaks, jumped around in the timeline a bit, and just …

Book Review: The Memoirs of US Grant

I’d been meaning to read Ulysses Grant’s memoirs for quite some time. After reading two large biographies and a few analyses of his generalship in the Civil War, I had a pretty good portrait of Grant painted for me. However, I wanted to get inside the mind of the man himself. I wanted to see …

Book Review: Fields of Fire by James Webb

I knew of James Webb the politician before I knew of James Webb the author. I liked what he had to say in the 2016 Democratic primary debates, and would have gladly voted for him had he been the nominee. But that’s neither here nor there. Fields of Fire is a story that focuses primarily …

Book Review: “Never Die” by Rob J. Hayes

I haven’t posted a book review in a while, mostly because the books I’ve been reading have been very long and take a while to finish. I should be finished with one of them by next week and can post a new review there. But in the meantime, I’ll re-post this older book review of …

How Did it Come to This?

Yesterday, what we all knew was going to happen, happened. Russia invaded Ukraine. It’s a terrifying moment for the people of Ukraine and its neighboring countries like Romania or Poland. The Ukranian government has even resorted to handing out military weapons to civilians in Kyev. I’ve been following along with the news as best I …

Weekend Update: Super Bowl 2022

Even if you don’t follow football at all, you were probably aware that this past weekend was the Super Bowl weekend. It’s watched by about 100 million people every year, making it one of the most American events of the year. Friends and families gather to eat a lot of good food, spend time together, …

Book Review: “Attack and Die” by Dr. Grady McWhiney

This is a book I’ve been meaning to read for a while. Written 40 years ago by a man considered to be the leading authority of the history of Antebellum South and the Civil War, Attack and Die gives an in-depth look at what made America’s war against itself so particularly brutal. (Also one of …

Weekend Update: Free Books and Not-So-Free Dogs

Good morning, everybody! I’m back with another weekly update. Over the last two days I ran another ‘free book’ deal on Amazon Kindle. I do these every couple months, usually get a few downloads out of it. I usually announce this on Twitter but I forgot this time. So I went to check how many …

Back at it Again

As you may recall, back in December I decided to take a brief hiatus from working on my current manuscript, Creed: Solomon’s Fortune. I’d ran into a brick wall of writer’s block and needed some time away from it to get fresh ideas. Well, this weekend I finally managed to dive back in and I’m …
